Disclosure: I received a Black+Decker Cordless Sander to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
I do a fair amount of work with my hands. I have used multiple sanders over the time, including some electric ones as well as a previous cordless model. Black+Decker has a great cordless 20V lithium that is ideal for my use. I have used 20V Black+Decker products in the past. The drill I reviewed last year had a great 20V battery and what I find is that they are strong enough to last far longer then we often expect them to. This enables you to get more work done in between charges.
Pointed Nose Sander Is Great For Detail
I actually find the pointed nose feature to be a major bonus. This feature allows for detail work, by allowing me to get in closer in areas where a normal blunt nosed sander would be completely ineffective.
I also am looking forward to the ability to use this at work, as for the past while I have actually returned to hand sanding, simply because I was having a rough time finding a sander that I was happy with. One thing that is an issue though, is that it takes a whole lot longer to prep a room for a touch-up paint job when you are hand sanding all the patches. When you are repainting commercial office units, which often have lots of hanging posters, pictures, paintings etc. The ability to make quick work of the sanding is a definite plus.
This sander is definitely going to be a benefit when it comes time to start building new shelves for my kids toys in their playroom.
Black+Decker has given me the opportunity to give away a cordless sander to one of my readers. Open to Canada Only (No Quebec) Ends December 5
